Why, yes, I WOULD like a receipt!

Ezra Klein had a post yesterday over at WaPo offering praise for an idea from an organization called Third Way, which is advocating the idea of a taxpayer receipt.  I wholeheartedly agree!  Take a look:

Third Way's proposal is here.  It's an idea that makes tremendous sense.  Sure, there will always be people who will quibble over amounts and proportions, but at least everyone will have a new-found (for most) perspective.  And, for those who fear giving the nitpicking masses something to focus on:  it's clear that horse has already left the stable.
